82 Fabulous New Goodies, Project Inspiration, 10% Off SALE, and a GIVEAWAY!

 
I'm so excited about the AWESOME new products we have for you! All 82 of them (plus the new Collage Sheets for a total of 102!). I just couldn't stop myself this time around for our largest release yet! The first thing I'm really loving is our new BASICS collection. TONS of blanks - ATCs, Microslides, Dominos, Circles, Squares, Letters, and so much more in just about ever size, style, and material you can think of! Many people have asked for certain shapes with different holes etc. so now everyone is set! Check it all out HERE.



Here are a few more of my favorites! I know Christmas isn't even here yet, but I was excited to start working on my second favorite holiday (aside from Halloween) Valentine's Day! I threw in some St. Patrick's while I was at it. Above, Heart Skeleton Keys!


Circus Muscle Man Stand-ups (several styles).


Beautiful Cameo Frames and Profiles!
Also sized to fit our Crystal Clear Acrylic Cabochons.


"Candy" Hearts - in Classic, Current, and my favorite Anti-Valentine :). 


Yummy!


Vintage ruler charms!


 And 14 new Valentine and St. Patrick's Day stencils!



There are WAY too many new goodies to list, but you can see them all HERE!



With Christmas around the corner it was time to start working on some handmade gifts! I put several of the new products to the test and I can tell you they are fabulous! I plan to create tutorials on each piece below in the future, so I won't go into too much detail, but I will tell you which products I used.


Mini Journal Necklaces
Supplies:


I used the 1" Rounded Square Stencil Board blanks to create the mini journal. The pages rotate open :). Complete with mini pencil.



Junk House
Supplies:
House Shrine PendantKey Charm, Gilders Paste (Black, Patina, Inca Gold), and Silver Pin Back




Bird Bracelet
Supplies:


Earring Tree (hehe)
Supplies:



Day of the Dead Brooch
Supplies: 


I had a blast making these! I also found that because I was making them with a specific person in mind, the ideas were flowing like crazy!



And here are all of my gifts under the tree :).
